Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed an energy-efficient recycling process that restores used cathodes from spent lithium ion batteries and makes them work just as good as new. The process involves harvesting the degraded cathode particles from a used battery and then…
Researchers from UC San Diego and UT Austin have demonstrated zinc-oxide thin-film transistor sensors for new functionality in touch screen displays on mobile devices.
A team of researchers has developed an ultrasound-based system that can non-invasively and remotely control genetic processes in live immune T cells so that they recognize and kill cancer cells.
5th-year Computer Science major Julia Len is runner-up for Computing Research Association's Outstanding Undergraduate Research Awards, specifically for her high-profile paper on hash functions in cryptography.
UC San Diego signs a memorandum of understanding with Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology to cooperate on research in computer science and artificial intelligence.
Shirley Meng, professor of nanoengineering at the University of California San Diego, is focused on developing the next generation of high performance batteries that will power electric cars and a green energy grid for a more sustainable future. As director of the UC San Diego Sustainable Power and Energy…
Researchers at UC San Diego have developed macrophage "nanosponges"—nanoparticles cloaked in the cell membranes of macrophages—that can safely remove sepsis-causing molecules from the bloodstream. In lab tests, these macrophage nanosponges improved survival rates in mice with sepsis.
Historical cliff erosion rates may have little power to predict future risk, according to a recent study from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego that used laser data to create 3D maps. The new research provides accurate erosion rates for 680 miles of the…
The 31st annual conference on Neural Information Processing Systems attracted nearly 8,000 attendees, including a large delegation from Computer Science and Engineering as well as three other UC San Diego departments.
A hardware security company co-founded by UC San Diego computer scientists has received $2 million in seed funding from Eclipse Ventures to ramp up engineering, sales and marketing of semiconductor design tools to identify and prevent security vulnerabilities.
